David McNew

Broome County Sheriff’s officials say they found marijuana after they had to chase down a motorist in the City of Binghamton and into the Town of Fenton.

Authorities say shortly after 12 a.m. October 7 they tried to stop a vehicle on Henry Street and chased the car to Hillcrest in the area of Nowlan Road near Chenango Street.

Deputies say 27 year old Tajharay Pugh ran and officers deployed a Taser, stopping him.

Authorities say they found six individually wrapped bags containing a green, leafy substance that tested positive for marijuana.

Pugh is charged with unlawfully fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle, unlawful possession of marijuana, resisting arrest, reckless driving and several traffic and vehicle law violations.

He was sent to the Broome County Jail on $7,500 bail.
